Below are some examples of the types of barcode images that we can provide. All of our barcode images are very high quality (600dpi) and are emailed in 4 different formats (jpeg, eps, pdf, tiff & bmp) so that you can use your preferred format.

If your order is automated, you will receive the barcode images by email in a zip folder.  A sample zip folder containing our barcodes can be downloaded below on the right side of this page. If you have trouble using these, please contact us, and we can arrange for other images to be sent to you.

Standard Retail Barcode (EAN)

The barcodes that we supply are EAN-13 (European Standard) codes. They are suitable for use on any retail product in Ireland, the UK, Europe, and worldwide. EAN-13 barcodes are 13-digit long codes that are based on 12-digit UPC codes (American Standard). If you want us to send your barcode to you in UPC format instead of EAN format, that is fine. Just let us know when you are making your order.
